One of the agenda items during the last RO City Council meeting was a contract termination for Zyterra re: City Wifi. Whatever happened to that idea and why are we just now terminating that contract? How long was the contract for services? What did it actually entail other than renting "space" on a city water tower for wifi infrastructure.
The whole Zyterra deal in Red Oak has a very interesting history beginning with the company being outsourced by ROISD for technology/network services, becoming a sole service contractor for ROISD , renewal of contract for several years, and finally a deal between the police and city for wifi system that was questionable and not utilized by the city according to statements made in response to the termination of contract agenda discussion.
The last time I checked, former Zyterra employees still could be found in the current organizational chart at ROISD. Just can't seem to get their faces out of the public trough. Hopefully the new "Tech Czar" will re-org the ENTIRE tech department and get our schools back on a road to the 20th century technology wise.
I hope Zyterra had a good run...they took enough of our tax money and are smiling all the way to the bank...also heard their company had been bought out from a council member. (According to a poster...they just changed names...bet I know why) Good for them and good for we taxpayers.
